Casper Aguila's project examines the arise and decay of sculptures. By examining the steps behind the making of traditional sculptures, often read as concrete physical and fixed results, Aguila tries to showcase the change of intentions and expressions during production.
Both self-created and found unfinished or failed results act as motives for Aguila's documentary studies of unpredictable results.
